Polyester pillows

A comfy pillow that suits the way you sleep can mean you start every day with a smile on your face. Our polyester, hollow fibre, and microfibre pillows offer something for everyone, whether you sleep on your back, stomach or side. They're also machine-washable, so you can keep them clean and fresh.

A good night’s rest is one of life’s greatest - yet simplest - pleasures. It’s also an essential part of everyday health and happiness. That’s why having the right pillow is so important. A good pillow should be smooth, soft and provide the perfect amount of support for your head and neck while you sleep. It lets you relax and rest comfortably while literally taking the weight of your shoulders.   Get comfortable, relaxed and drift off to sleep with a microfibre, hollowfibre or polyester pillow from IKEA. We offer soft and firm pillows for back, stomach or side sleepers in a variety of shapes and sizes.  

Microfibre, hollowfibre and polyester pillows 

Pillows need to be soft enough to be comfortable, but also firm enough to provide support. They should also be breathable, easy to clean, hypoallergenic and resistant to moisture. That’s why synthetic materials such as microfibre, hollowfibre and polyester make for great pillows. 

Microfibre pillows are made of ultra-thin threads of polyester and nylon which are tightly woven together at between 180 to 280 threads per square inch. This makes the pillow naturally antimicrobial, and a good choice if you suffer from allergic reactions. Synthetic materials also naturally repel moisture, which is an important quality for many reasons. For one, this helps keep you dry during the night, and secondly, it makes pillows easy to machine wash and keep fresh. Micro, hollow and polyester-based pillows achieve all this while also providing softness and support to rival feather, down and memory foam pillows. 

Choosing the right pillow for you 

The softness, firmness and shape of your pillow should be determined by your sleeping habits. Pillows are designed to provide different support depending on your normal sleeping position. A good pillow should keep your head at a position and angle similar to when you’re standing up with perfect posture.  

A firm and high pillow is usually designed for back or side sleepers, because your head will need more support to be perfectly aligned. Softer pillows are generally meant for stomach sleepers, since that position requires less firmness to achieve the required neck-support.  

Make sure to read the product description to learn the intended sleeping position of each pillow.
